Abstract
Inspired by the color palette and surface treatment of classical paintings and sculptures, my work exhibits quaintness. I employ highly contrasting lightings, and muted colors from the paintings of Caravaggio and Zurbaran to generate visual tension, and drama. The combination of black slip and white terra-sigillata, creates washed effects, alluding to patina. The surface treatment and building process embodies the birth, distortion, and evanescence of memory. This involves taking certain information out while exaggerating or highlighting other. Materializing memory from spontaneous decision making, and actions becomes a three-dimensional sketching.
